Default Do I need Professional Help ???

Boat motor will not crank / turn over. Everything else works electrically except the tilt trim on the shifter. 90 hp 4 stroke Yamaha. Battery is good. All fuses I can find are good. Any suggestions or is this another thing I need professional help with.

I've had this happen before. Move the throttle several times all the way forward and then reverse. In my case, the neutral sensor was stuck and the rapid movement freed it up. Long shot, but worth a try.

All good ideas so far. Put new ends on cables and put them on a new battery. Didn't help.

have lubricated neutral safety switch and it pops in and out great.

kill switch will allow a motor to turn over but not fire. This one won't even turn over.

FYI I ran it a month age just fine.

I've seen this happen, or very similar...turned out to be poor connections to the battery, where the lugs were crimped to the wire, not necessarily the lugs themselves. Have also seen it be the neutral switch. I bet there could be a handful of potential ways to make it act that way. I'd look for a ground issue?

look around in the crank battery compartment for another fuse holder. mine has one that has a automotive type plug in fuse. the first time it happened to me, i looked for a fuse and didn't recognize the holder type, then almost never got it open to inspect the fuse. good luck.

I got this hooked to my BEP switch for the motor, If it blows the motor will not crank, I would check to see if you have one. Mine is a 15amp fuse with a second for standby if I need it.
